Quality manual

One of our strongest selling points is the good quality of our water bottles. We work according to strict production and quality guidelines to keep the quality of the water bottles high. This means that we have a clean room where we pack the water bottles, we work with gloves and hair nets, use a fail-safe traceability system, and all water bottles are tested according to a fixed process. The raw materials we use to produce the water bottles comply with EU directives and come from Germany.

History

On 1 May 1957, Tacx BV, the parent company of Bottle Promotions, starts selling and repairing bicycles and mopeds as a bike shop in Wassenaar. In 1964, we start fabricating exhausts for mopeds, the first step toward greater things. In these early years, we fabricate parts ourselves because it is cheaper and quality is higher. In this way, Tacx gives the impulse for the ‘constant improvement’ mentality, which is anchored in the company to this day. In 1969, the step is made from a bike shop in the village to a factory in an industrial park.

Rollers & the first bike trainer

In 1972, it is decided to start manufacturing rollers. This is still a small market, but Tacx knows the Dutch professionals personally, and its goal is to help them improve. In 1987, the current factory building of almost 10,000 m2 opens. Investment is made in automation and, among other things, working with welding robots. Tacx is one of the first companies in the Netherlands with its own automation robot.

Aside from rollers, home trainers and bicycle racks for cars are also put on the market. Later, the water bottles and tools are added.

Bottle Promotions

Around 2004, about 80% of Tacx water bottles are sold in the cycling sector. The other 20% is sold in the promotional sector through a single client that focuses on this sector. After a successful partnership for a number of years, this company makes the decision to focus on production in the Far East. Koos Tacx decides to take over the part of the company that sells water bottles, and Bottle Promotions is born: a company that concentrates on the promotional sector.

Through the PSI trade shows that we have been attending since 2005, we ultimately also get to know the business gift sector well. We have only recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary, and we are proud of our achievements: having started with a small production hall with a single blow-moulding machine and a simple printing machine, we have grown to become a hypermodern, Sedex-certified production facility.

We are happy to serve you with your orders.

Bottle Promotions Team

Lizzie Armitstead

Elizabeth Armitstead, born in Leeds on 18th December 1988, is a British cyclist riding for the Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team. Armitstead started her career on the tracks and between 2007 and the start of 2011 she won several World Cups, including the team pursuit, scratch race and points races. At the World Championships she was also successful with one bronze and three silver medals.

Soon she discovered that she was a great road racer as well. After several victories between 2009 and 2011 she won the silver medal for her country in the Olympic games of 2012. Two years later, in 2014, she received her first World Cup when she won the Ronde van Drenthe. Later that year she won the overall title for the UCI Women’s Road World Cup, with her best season still to come.

In 2015 she won several one day World Cup races and the British National Road Race Championships for the third time, taking her to the top of the UCI world rankings. That August she sprinted to victory in the final World Cup race of the season, the GP de Plouay, to retain her World Cup title. And to cap this great season she won the World Championships Road Race on 25th September 2015, enabling her to wear the Rainbow Jersey for 2016.

Peter Sagan

Peter Sagan, born in Žilina on 26th January 1990, is a Slovakian cyclist riding for the Tinkoff team. This all-round rider is especially strong in sprints. Sagan had a successful junior cyclo-cross and mountain bike racing career, winning the Junior Mountain Bike World Championship in 2008, before moving to road racing. Sagan won the points classification in the Tour de France in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, and as a result became the first rider to win the classification in his first five attempts. On top of this and other prestigious victories he became World Champion in 2015.

Aside from his great achievements, Sagan is closely involved in road racing in Slovakia, Israel and Poland. His goal is to stimulate and help young talents to become part of a professional team, which is a bigger challenge in these countries than in countries where cycling is a very popular sport, like the Netherlands. For this reason, Sagan is the ambassador for the Cycling Academy Team, a Pro Continental cycling team with an Israeli license, founded in 2015 and managed by former pro rider Ran Margaliot. The team won its first victory in the fourth stage of the Tour of Azerbaijan when Danial Turek was the first to cross the finish line.
